Battery U expected to open this summer
Battery technology, business and innovation classes will be offered in a continuing education program expected to begin this summer on the San Jose State University (SJSU) campus in Santa Clara, California. The "battery university" is a joint initiative by the school and CalCharge, an energy storage accelerator program.
According to a Gigaom article, California is home to more than 40 battery companies. The courses are expected to help meet the needs of the fast-growing industry.
From an SJSU blog: â€œAs an institution of higher education, we know the challenges in meeting the workplace demand for trained personnel in this rapidly growing and changing field,â€ said SJSU Vice President for University Advancement Rebecca Dukes. â€œFor this reason, we are very pleased to be partnering with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and CalCharge to meet this critical need of Californiaâ€™s clean energy ecosystem.â€
